These are the artists that bring our mascots and stories to life:
Whenever Lena learned to hold a pen, she started drawing. Up to this day, she still loves to make art and spends hours making animated films. She has always watched My Little Pony and collected the figures, back since Generation 1. When Gen 4 was introduced, it didn’t take long before ponies had to be drawn. Lena has been involved with Hearth’s Warning Con since the start in 2014, she was the main artist who designed Ember and Glace.
Even though she left her committee position to take care of her daughter, she’s happy to still be part of the artist team of Hearth’s Warming Con. Now she happily lives with her husband, daughter and cats. Sometimes it’s difficult to combine being an artist and motherhood, but as long as you’re creative you will find a way to accomplish anything you want and be as happy as you can be.
Vera is an artist of all trades, dabbling in various fandoms and having many interests. Ever since friendship became magic, she’s added ponies to that arsenal. She is a member of the oldest Dutch doujinshi circle Cheesecake Studio and attends many cons throughout the year. Next to drawing, she also enjoys baking, gardening and taking care of her two cats.
Yuntao has always loved drawing and when she joined the fandom sometime during season 4, after watching Castle Mane-ia, she started to draw ponies as well. Her favourite characters to draw are Luna and Celestia, and ever since she joined the HWcon artist team for 2016, Ember has earned herself a spot next to the princesses.
Ever since Anina started drawing around 2011, she was in love with everything pink and cute looking. What started with a very childish and simple Super Mario™ self insert OC called ‘Super Anina’ quickly grew into a new hobby she could not let go of, which was of course, drawing! Asides from drawing, Anina has always been in love with theatre, and has been in a club for about 8 years in the past! Now she’s a graphic design student located in Leeuwarden, working her way to a bright & creative future!
Puck used to draw when she was young but kinda lost interest due to school stress. However, when she discovered ponies, she also rediscovered her love for drawing. Puck started back in late 2015 and has been drawing pastel horses ever since. Besides drawing, she also enjoys cooking, Marvel movies, Netflix and playing with her four cats!
